The big dance is back - there will be another attempt on the Nutbush City Limits world record at this year's Birdsville Big Red Bash.

In 2018 the Big Red Bash partnered with the Royal Flying Doctor Service to host a successful world record attempt, which saw 1719 festivalgoers simultaneously perform the steps to Tina Turner's '80s classic.

With only weeks to go until this year's festival on July 16-18 event organisers are rallying for boot-scooting bush dancers to help them break their own world record.

It will be a record in a good cause too, with the $10 registration fee going once again the RFDS, which delivers much-needed medical serviced to isolated and remote outback communities.

The record attempt will be on the first day of the Big Red Bash. To sign up to be part of Nutbush, go to www.bigredbash.com.au/bigredbash/nutbush-world-record-attempt
